Texas Master Naturalists’ Mission
The Texas Master Naturalist Program’s mission is to develop a corps of well-informed volunteers to provide education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities for the State of Texas.
LETMN wants to encourage citizens of the region to explore their natural surroundings, to identify the most common plants and animals in their environment, and to learn the natural and human history of their region. To learn more click on the icons below.
